With a last name like “Weiner” it’s way too easy for the jokes to write themselves. The AP reports “Top Democratic women dodge tough call on Weiner”. Some of these women’s responses:
- “You’re right, I don’t like” questions about Weiner, Sen. Dianne Feinstein said with a smile.
- House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California, the first woman to serve as House speaker, said in a statement that she’s “disappointed” in Weiner.
- Sen. Patty Murray, head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said tersely Wednesday that “of course” Weiner’s troubles make it harder to elect Democrats to Congress. Murray said Thursday she thought she was answering a different question. Asked about the pressure on Weiner to resign, the Washington Democrat pointed out that he’s a member of the House.
Weinergate – the gift that keeps giving!
